the pod people have finally gotten into my head
that is the only explanation on why something as glorious as bacon salt now exists. because as we all already know, “everything should taste like bacon”.
why am i just now coming across this?

i have briefly touched on my preference of climbing the stairs in my building vs taking the elevator. but sometimes i come home late in a less than sober state and the elevator seems like such an easy choice. however, after getting stuck in the elevator last night at 2 am and having a few moments of absolute terror, i am now fully committed to taking the stairs.

i already knew kenley was rude and passive aggressive with a side of crazy, but didn’t anyone ever teach her that throwing your pet at a significant other is a no no? best bit in the article: “The fashion designer, 26, was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon the weapon being the cat itself”. i feel pretty lousy for the cat.
itunes reveals yet another forgotten gem to me
my love of dire straits’ walk of life knows no reason and it knows no bounds. the keyboards at the beginning are so great at setting everything up and frankly, i find the entire song to be wholly appealing and awesome. i’ll stop trying to make sense of it and just keep pressing ‘repeat’… which i already have. four times. make it five.
items that i desire. and some i could actually use. an actual bed/mattress a bike (with basket!) a sundress or two. or three. ( i have made the commitment i’m spending this year’s warm weather strictly in dresses) strappy sandals black flats a television (against my better judgement…) a blue wall (see below postings)

caught with my pants off
look, i get remodeling the apartment complex. and really, it is appreciated, it’s nice to know the manager is trying to keep the place in order. but what i’m not cool with are strange painters just walking into my apartment unannounced while i’m in the bathroom and then being caught deer-in-the-headlights with just my towel (and it’s lucky for everyone that i was even...

wow. understandably, the new modern wing of the mca is a huge investment which, of course, is (hopefully) going to be worthwhile, but extremely costly. however, charging locals almost $20 for a valuable, cultural experience is extremely painful, especially in economic times where people are tightening their pocketbooks enough as it is.

Livability by John Raymond
i just finished this book and it was absolutely wonderful. it’s a collection of short stories based in portland, oregon. the mix essentially was simple plot lines with deep, insightful characters. what struck me was how the author was able to be at the pulse of so many different personalities; he really understood how it might be to be 17, daring,...
what i would do for a new macbook. stumbling around apple’s store leaves me wanting pretty much everything. plus, while my old one is still kicking ass and taking care of business, you can tell she’s a golden girl and her days are most likely numbered.

Don't say 'moist' around me
moist in dealing with baked goods, ‘moist’ is an appropriate word to use. in just about any other situation, it’s a bad idea. for whatever reason, my mind conjures up an old, liver-spotted, wrinkly man walking about in his briefs and it is absolutely *horrifying*
no passport = working st. paddy's day weekend
i am never less than astonished at my ability to forget key elements in any given situation. example: this morning i was supposed to begin orientation which required id such as a passport, driver’s license, etc. i had my driver’s license, but packed my passport in another bag which i ended up not taking. the result? looking like an idiot at hr and having to begin orientation on the...
The Bohemian Manifesto by Laren Stover
i just finished this book a few days ago. i saw a lot of myself in it, the love of wearing exotic jewelry and plenty of black, taking sugar packets from restaurants (i refuse to buy white sugar at the store, on principle), shunning the elevator in my building for taking the 6 flights of stairs, owning a cat, etc. it left me with a new appreciation for dandies (helllloooo, chuck bass) and the...
